An art journal page Using ScrapFX Junk Journal and Girl Fashion rice paper

by Danielle Scholz | 0 comments

Hello Lovelies,

Dannii here again with my second post for June. Today I had an awesome play in my ScrapFX junk journal. Using the new release loopy script rice papers and girl fashion.

It was a great colourful play with a couple of great techniques, where I created a bright and colourful background using different stamps and mark making and then I used a ScrapFX stencil to  try out a reduction technique.

Which if I do say myself worked really well and makes the exposed background areas really pop.

This  become a great background to show case the Girl Fashion rice papers as a focal point in the foreground. I loved how it turned out  and will try this technique again.

Here’s what the finished pages look like

 

        

       

As always I have created a YouTube video to showcase these gorgeous products and the techniques used to create this striking art journal page.

You can watch the Youtube video here :

The Scrap FX products I used to create this project

  

 

So I hope you found this inspiring and have a go at using similar techniques and products  to the one’s I used in this tutorial.

Thank you  for watching and until next time

keep Arty.




 

Be Bold Be Brave Be YOU – Elisa Ablett

Hi Scrap FX Friends,

My turn up on the blog today with my newest inspiration project, a mixed media scrapbooking page.

I used the lovely Teal Flowers Collage paper as the start of my background. I glued that to my cardstock and then used a stencil to create more leaves, flowers and vines by tracing the inside of the stencil with a fine black marker. I then used watercolours to paint the inside of the traced stencil.

I just had to use the new Starry Flowers Chipboard pieces that are a recent release for Scrap FX and to add those pops of colour I embossed with three different colours from the Bee Arty Colour Blast range of powders including Envy, Deep Water and Just Blue.

Add some pieces of patterned paper layered behind your photo and of course don’t forget your transparencies!

Here are some close up photos –

Journal Page – KarenJ

by Karen Jarman | 0 comments

Hi SCRAP FX Creatives

Welcome to another creative week, KarenJ  here with you today sharing my latest journal page.

I just fell in love with the Elle by Claire Stead stencil! This stencil comes in a set positive and negative, how good is that?!

Other products used on the page are –

Fractured Time – which I used as an eye piece

Fern Leaf Stamp – stamped randomly around the page

Grungy Stars Transparency – for some added depth and interest to the page

Zinnia Stamp – stamped randomly around the page

Cross and Strokes stamp – stamped randomly around the page

Teen Advice Transparency

This layout was pretty quick to come together, the main background was created from left over paint and sprays from my last project. I laid a piece of white card stock over the leftover media on my mat and just loved how it looked.

I stamped around the page and coloured her hair with solid purple and used gold and black for highlights.

I finished off the page with a black doodled border.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Have a wonderful creative week.

 

 

Baby Bump + It’s a Beautiful Crown…..By Belinda Lowe

by Belinda Lowe | 0 comments

Good Morning Scrap FX Fans,

My turn on the blog today, and I have a layout  and an Art Journal Page to share with you all today, I hope you like it.

I have created this layout using the following products: Chrysanthemums, In and Out Circles, Lady In Waiting, Scrawl Hearts and Flowing Vine Frame

   

 

Here are a few close ups of the products I used

   

Scrawl Hearts and Baby Bump – Coloured with Alcohol Ink and Topped with Glossy Accents

Flowing Vine Frame – Embossed

In and Out Circles – Stamped with Distress Oxide

Next I have an Art Journal Page – My main focus was the face, It came across to me as a sad but powerful image

I have created this page using the following products: Loopy Petals Stamp, Zinnia Stamp, Cross and Strokes Stamp and Scribble Faces B Collage

      

And following is some of the process I used to create the Journal Page

This was a page in my art journal that wasn’t really doing anything and I thought it would be great as a background

So I adhered the face over the top and it gave under the face some texture

I then stamped the Loopy Petal Stamp with Permanent Ink making it look like some sort of bent crown and stamped a cross from the Cross & Strokes Stamp with Distress Oxide

I then re stamped the Loopy Petals with Versamark and embossed it in Gold

I then used the Zinnia Stamp to create a type of “hair” look with distress oxide

A bit of colour to the eyes and lips and a title to finish off

Thanks for stopping by the blog today, I hope you have been inspired to play along with all your new and old Scrap FX goodies!

Make sure you stop by the Scrap FX Creative Space on facebook to post all your Scrap FX related projects and to keep up to date with all the new releases

Happy Scrappy Days!!!

Belinda xx

 

 

PS – I’ve got something exciting coming next month

 

Vintage tags By Dannii

by Danielle Scholz | 0 comments

Hello Lovelies,

It’s Dannii here for my first post for June.

Today I thought I would try something a little different for me, and make a group of tags using the new release Scrap Fx Large tag set. These are a variety of different sized white tags with a different scalloped edge on each tag.

I teamed the tags up with the Bohemian Beauties collage sheet, which are just gorgeous vintage images that are the perfect size for the tags.

I recently brought some new embossing powders and distress glazes and decided I would like to use these to give my tags a real mixed media vintage feel.

I started with inking the edges of the tags and then layering pieces of corrugated card and a variety of different texture mediums to the base of the cards. Then I layered a variety of embossing powders and glazes to create a faux grungy metal background which I think turned out great. I then layered different types of fodder ribbons and stamps in an assemblage manner to create some interest to the tags. I then topped them off with the images from the vintage collage sheet. Adding a few quotes from the ScrapFx Kraft words Journey.

    

You can watch the whole tag making process on the ScrapFX YouTube Channel here:

Here are the Amazing ScrapFx Products used in the project:

   

 

Hope you enjoyed this project I know I did! I would love it if you could leave a comment and if you were inspired to make your own set do not forget to share your project on the Facebook page, ScrapFX Creative Space.

Until next time,

keep Arty.

 

Risque and Sirens Art Journal Pages by Karen Yates

by Karen Yates | 0 comments

Hey everyone, it’s the 18th and it’s my turn again to share my art journal pages with you.  Today I have 2 projects for you. The first is using the super cool collage paper Risque Women, classifieds rice paper, new stamp loopy petals and a quote from Daphne Dot collage paper. I’ve also added in a “glass window” using the mandala transparency so that it looks like these are good girls standing outside a church or something, but really they aren’t!!

Click on the link below and you can check out my process video.

Here are the list of yummy Scrap FX goodies I used to create this page:

For my next arty adventures, I used the new rice paper, Sirens.  I’ve also used some of the classifieds rice paper and a little bit of the mesh and pavement from a couple of releases ago.  I have used the new Crosses and Strokes foam stamp, and an older circle stamp – one of my favourites Letter and Number rings!! I have also used some kraft collage words for my sentiment.

Click on the picture below so you can watch my process on the Scrap FX YouTube channel.

here is the list of products I used to create this one:

Double the Fun – by Elisa Ablett

by Elisa Ablett | 0 comments

 

Hi Scrap FX Fans !

Elisa here from the design team with my latest inspiration for you.

I created a couple of bright and funky art journal pages recently after a night of Gel Printing fun, and added a shipload of Scrap FX Goodies.

I love combining gel prints with stamps, stencils and collage paper to create a layered look to my art journal projects. I used a combination of bright Acrylic Paints from Dina Wakley and Colour Blast Artist Inks as my base mediums on the gel plate. I then added some image transfers using a fabulous technique by talented artist – Birgit Koopsen and to finish I added stencilling and paint pens to add mark making to each page.

And don’t forget after all that….it’s time for all the Scrap FX goodies.

Let’s take a closer look at the first art journal page –

Beautiful by Ros Aggett-Macley

Hi,

today I’m sharing 2 pages using the Elle Stencil.

One page with the positive piece, the other the negative.

The first page also features a piece of Blue Mandala collage paper.  It’s a bit tatty, left over from a previous project but I love this look.

I’ve also used the Zinnia Stamp, Beautiful Rose and Stitched Ladies.

The 2 other stencils on this page are Words of Wisdom and Faces Stencil Set, finishing off the page with a quote from the Kraft Words Journal.

Sweet Treats by Amy

by Amy Turner | Comments Off on Sweet Treats by Amy

Hellloooo everyone! My Dad will hate this because he hates having his picture taken but I just had to do something
with him when I got my cupcakes from Scrap FX.
My Dad LOVES baked goods, cakes, pies, cupcakes, cookies, you name it
and he is here for it! lol

I had made a picture of him licking his lips a few years ago to make a birthday card and
decided to use it again to make a fun canvas.

I was having so much fun playing in my art room I decided
to mess around in a junque journal with the new Daisy Dot.

I used the following Scrap FX products

Mechanical Bits

Headphones and Sound wave

Cupcakes

Circular Shawl Stencil

Hibiscus A

Loopy Petals Stamp

Daisy Dot By Michelle Logan

Zinnia Stamp

Fern Leaf Stamp

For the canvas I started by putting a  layer of gesso down, and then some scraps of gel printed deli paper.
Then I  pretty much finger painted (cuz who doesn’t love finger painting?!)
some rainbow colours around the wood panel canvas. After that I used black acrylic with the circle stencil.

I used gel matte medium to stick my dad down in the centre. While that dried I painted up my
cupcakes and added some glitter to the tops of them.
I added some marks around the circle, and the word yummy and mmm on one of the rays. lol
I painted a piece of the cog and a bar and then I used a brad to connect them.
Then I glued the smallest cupcake to it.
I glued it down and then glued the big cupcake over top.
Now the little cupcake spins when you move it. I added the last cupcake as
well as the sound wave which sort of reminded me of a heartbeat.
I printed the words “Did someone say cupcake” and painted the edge
and now I have a fun canvas of my Dad. And I helped celebrate Pride month with a rainbow piece. 🙂

For the journal page I put some marks with a scribble stick and some acrylic paint. and then I just played around.
I stamped in the background so it’s hard to see the zinnia and loopy petal stamps. Also the fern leaf.
Then I put some more acrylic paint and marks around the page. I added a hibiscus shape that I had painted
as well as some words and I decided she was done.

Hope everyone is having a great summer so far! Stay safe!

Your strangeness is your magic. by Lisa

by Lisa Rabellino | Comments Off on Your strangeness is your magic. by Lisa

Hi friends!

Lisa today to share with you my new project for Scrap Fx design team! I made this art journal inspiration playing with some collage papers, stamps and paints!

To start I glued various pieces of collage paper with gel medium. After that I used acrylic paints with my fingers, leaving some white spaces to give more interest on the background.

Then I chose Zebra Circles stamp and I stamped here and there with black archival ink. I love this stamp for art journaling!

So I prepared some paper elements cutting some flowers, circles and a doll from collage papers.

 

I cut some sentiments from Mini Funky Folk papers and for a final touch I made splatters with white and teal liquid paint.

I used these products from the store:
